Default Patty and I are still needing your prayers

Hello CruiseMates, Today I called the agency that handles Patty's case. I made an appointment to speak with the housing director for tomorrow afternoon. I am very nervous about this meeting, I think it will decide wether I get to keep Patty or not. She asked me to come to the meeting in the morning for my medication training recertification. I think it is a good sign that she was concerned about my certification lapsing. So tomorrow could be the day that I get answers. Again I ask you to put your hands together and pray for this special one for me. I hate to keep asking but you have all gotten me this far. Thanks again for everything.


Laura and Patty

Show them some of the photos that you took during the Glory B cruise Laura. It did my heart a world of good to see how happy she was for those things that were done just to make this a memorable cruise for her.

PS Mark says to give her another hug from him and he was very happy to make her special.

Default Prayers for Patty

Absolutely thinking of both you and Patty, Laura. Yes, it's a good idea to take pictures along to the meeting of Patty on the cruise. Will Patty go to the meeting, too? Does she have a say in all of this?

Judy, Patty has had a say in this. The day before we left for the cruise she was visited at the respite home by her guardian. He took her aside and spoke to her privately. She told him absolutely that she wanted to be with me. He seemed to be happy with that and mentioned the bond between Patty and I. He says in all his years working with developmentally disabled people he has never seen anything like it. Then at the meeting they had, all of the team members, resource coordinator and day services provider spoke strongly in my favor. Patty's brother had called from Florida to tell him that he wants me as her home provider too. All of those people including the guardian in my favor and the director of housing is still not sure. I hope that tomorrows meeting will prove to her my sincerity in this. It was pointed out to her that I have cared for Patty for 5 years. The contract was not broken by anything I did but by my former partners actions. Getting me reinstated as her home provider seems to be a major challenge. CruiseMates prayers have brought me this far and I have faith that they will succeed in this.

Laura

Hi Laura,

My thoughts and prayers are with you and Patty. I agree that you should take the pictures of you and Patty on your cruise. She looks so happy!

I'm thinking that the meeting tomorrow is just part of the "red tape" you have to go through.

Thinking of you both,

Hi Laura,
I pray that things go well for you today. You sound like an angel to Patty. Sorry to read that you didn't sleep well. Not fun to anticipate such a meeting.
